Chocolate Avocado Pudding Recipe

In an effort to get a bit creative with our desserts we decided to try a new way of making chocolate pudding… we added avocados! Since avocados are in season right now we made this chocolate avocado pudding for dessert and couldn’t be happier.

The taste was smooth and silky and the chocolate flavor was enhanced by the avocado. Plus? It was SO easy to make. It took no time at all and it didn’t need to chill.

Now I know exactly what I’ll do with avocados when I don’t want to make guacamole or put it on my sandwich and the kids are asking for dessert… it’ll be pudding time!

Chocolate Avocado Pudding

Chocolate Avocado Pudding

  • 1/4 cup soft margarine (I used spreadable butter w/ canola oil)
  • 1 cup pureed/mashed avocado
  • 1 cup confectioners sugar
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup corn starch

In a medium saucepan melt margarine on low.

Add avocado, sugar, cocoa, and vanilla and stir well to incorporate.

Use a spatula to mash avocado more so that everything is smooth. Cook for 3-4 minutes until thickened.

Take pudding off the heat and add corn starch. Stir well. Serve pudding warm and enjoy!

What do you love to use avocado for?

  1. Well I am not a fan of the avocado, no fault of its our, I just don’t care for it. But, on the other hand my wife loves it, mainly with Mexican foods. I should give the avocado a second look, sense it is pack with nutrients.

  3. I use it for facials if I have an avocado that is a bit too ripe to eat. I love it on everything. It’s like butter to me!

    I really need to try avocado (I haven’t yet!), my siblings love it and it is so good for you I need to open my mind 🙂

  9. I would NEVER think to mix chocolate and avocado but if you say so, I’ll have to try this out. I love eating avocado by itself, and especially in guacamole.

  13. I think if you substituted 1 c of Coconut Palm Sugar or Maple Sugar, you could cut down on the glycemic index (with the coconut palm). I think the 1/4 c of margarine or butter is harsh, but I think maybe you could look into using Coconut oil or something to make it a bit healthier. I love the use of hte avocado, but all in all, I’d like to see this recipe a bit more healthier.
